High Sierra Landscape Painting – Bishop, Owens Valley

High Sierra Fall Color
(a ranch near Bishop, in the Owens Valley)
14 x 18 oil on canvas

As I continue with my High Sierra fall series, this painting portrays a tranquil pasture land, which I’m pretty sure is named Round Valley. It’s near Bishop. The peaks may be Mt. Morgan and Mt. Abbot, or perhaps the one on the right is Mt. Tom. I’m not too good with my geography of that region, so I’d appreciate knowing the names so I can be accurate.

    Wonderful perspective in your art. The colors do make you feel like you are in the middle of fall.
